    AXE133 display problem

    I've experienced the lines flipping before. I tied it down to initialization problems. This particular display had seen stacks of ON time. I found that I had to increase the Power stabilization time as high as 900mS. And found it was beneficial to even increase the Pause time after sending...

    ReadADC and Comparator off the same pin

    Thanks (y) You mean to both questions?

    ReadADC and Comparator off the same pin

    Hi people, Just a bit of advice needed. I have a sensor connected to Pin b.4, ADC 6, Comp 1, on a 20X2. I wish to use that pin for a read ADC10 and a Comparator interrupt, from that same sensor. Is this permissible? I was also wondering if its not a problem to issue the CompSetup command at...

    Surely a PICAXE could be shoehorned in somewhere

    I do get your meaning. I'm not a Youtube creator. But have thought about posting a few of my projects online. So as to show people what Picaxe can do. But.. I'm not a real, look what I have done, type person. And my coding style rather abstract, and not orthodox, as the better codes here. Plus...

    Print layout (Slave) til Display OLED modul (16x2)

    If I was going to make my own version of this board. I would consider making it with a 20X2 or 20M2. I've made many projects over the years with this board solely. And wished it had a few more spare pins available, and they were the pins that had more functionality.

    Reduce component wattage for LED strobes?

    You may even want to upgrade. https://store.flytron.com/collections/led-light-systems/products/strobon-v2-cree-edition-navigation-strobe-lights A friend and I use these on our planes, when we do FPV night flying, using 10microLux camera's. These Cree strobes are extremely bright. With multiple...

    Surely a PICAXE could be shoehorned in somewhere

    Thank you for the explanation. And its great to see you back.(y) Without going too deep into things. The PIC18 is lacking for its package size. By present silicon standards As you stated. There are functions that would be nice to have integrated, as many new processors do. Back in 2011, it was...

    Surely a PICAXE could be shoehorned in somewhere

    100% agree. A little off topic.. But I wonder why RevEd didn't just go with 16K in one slot on the X2? And 4K on the M2's.

    Surely a PICAXE could be shoehorned in somewhere

    In so many projects like this on BG. You see the Ardu IDE library code.. And never .Bas. I believe this is why. IMO Picaxe's biggest limitation has become its old hardware. Not .Basic code format. Plus lacking a task scheduler, makes Picaxe unappealing in many cases.. when compared to the...

    Picaxe Programmer Wanted

    Hi Alan, Yes 'technically' its not a Pitot. But the term seemed easier to explain it with. Being that the tube has a pressure sensor at the other end;) Here is a picture of one of my installs. Both use the same clear vinyl tubing. Which are covered in (black) split conduit, to prevent UV...

    Picaxe Programmer Wanted

    In all my projects that use pressure transducers. I connect the sensor up to the measurement point via a Pitot tube. Which consists of clear vinyl tubing and two barbed threaded fittings. This uses the air in the tube as a medium for measurement, rather than the fluid. Which prevents the sensors...

    "Improving" the AXE133 (OLED) Firmware ?

    I finished this part of my project a few ago and thought I would post my results for the DAC screen brightness control, to help anyone else who might want to implement it. Thanks to Nick12ab for the idea and Alan for the help along the way. It uses n4800 baud @ 32Mhz on both 18M2 and 28X2...

    Using Scratch Pad to store character data X2

    That's correct. Debugging meaning real time with the chip. I see the same as you posted, when using the simulator. But when real time debugging. Scratch pad, under the memory tab never gets populated. I agree this is not totally efficient. Please read my reply to Alan below, of why I am doing it...

    Using Scratch Pad to store character data X2

    Sorry, I didn't explain that clear enough... I can see the contents of the scratch pad in the simulator. But can't see the scratch pad contents in the memory tool bar, when debugging.

    Using Scratch Pad to store character data X2

    Hi Guys, me again. I just got back to doing some more testing. And I have hit a snag that I can't work out. This bit of code sends the message to the scratch pad, then reads it back out to the display... It then clears a specific segment of the displayed message and leaves the rest. #Picaxe...
